My personal safety

Post by davcon4005 » Sat Sep 12, 2015 2:06 pm

Hi everyone..

Due to my cancers, I am pretty much unable to swim (my shoulder and arm joints are really sore and stiff). My question is would I be over the top wearing a flotation suit or life jacket or both while fishing from shore and piers.

wear what you feel comfortable with mate. a lot of people wear flotation suits just to keep warm and dry from the shore.
